I was wondering what some words are to mean one person taking only part of the other's words?
B is A's advisor.
A says "I would like to focus on just two projects, because otherwise I will be tied up and nothing probably will be done well." B says to A that he is adamant regarding this and requires A to do four projects at the same time. A has no choice but to follow what B says.
B then makes judgment, by saying that A is reluctant to do projects, to A and possibly other people.
Most likely A is not happy about what B says. He believes that it is not a simple matter of not willing to do projects, but is because of the amount that A can handle well.
If you were A, how would you describe B and his only taking part of A's words without repeating A's reasons, which otherwise might make A's choice more understandable?
